A 38-year-old unvaccinated Air Force veteran from North Carolina was forced to turn down over 100 kidney donors because of a hospital policy that requires him to be vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the surgery.
Chad Carswell’s kidney is only operating at about 4% and he is seriously in need of a kidney transplant. Right now, he is looking for another hospital.
In his recent interview with ABC affiliate, Carswell told WSOC:
“No sir … I was born free. I will die free. I’m not changing my mind. I’ve had conversations with my family and everybody who is close to me and they know where I stand and there will not be a situation that occurs where I’ll change my mind on this topic.”
Chad Carswell, 38, strongly believes that getting the vaccine should be a choice and doesn’t think it’s very effective in preventing infection.
